DEFCON 20: Can You Track Me Now? Government And Corporate Surveillance Of Mobile Geo-Location Data
Speaker: CHRISTOPHER SOGHOIAN OPEN SOCIETY FELLOW, OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATIONS BEN WIZNER DIRECTOR, SPEECH, PRIVACY, & TECHNOLOGY PROJECT, ACLU CATHERINE CRUMP STAFF ATTORNEY, SPEECH, PRIVACY, & TECHNOLOGY PROJECT, ACLU ASHKAN SOLTANI INDEPENDENT RESEARCHER & CONSULTANT ON PRIVACY, SECURITY, AND BEHAVIORAL ECONOMICS Our mobile phones and apps systematically collect and store comprehensive historical lists of our locations and our travels. Advertising and marketing companies extract and interpret these lists for use in their information-gathering networks, effectively turning our phones into 24/7 location tracking devices. Because this information is readily available to the government, law enforcement agencies now have unparalleled access to knowledge of where you are, where you've been, and through inference, who you are. In this panel, tech experts Christopher Soghoian and Ashkan Soltani, alongside Catherine Crump, staff attorney with the ACLU's Project on Speech, Privacy, and Technology, will present a briefing on the current technological and legal landscape of location data tracking. The panelists will explore how consumer location tracking efforts weave a story about the systemic privacy vulnerabilities of smart phones and the legal ways in which law enforcement has been able to hitch a ride. The panel will be moderated by the Director of the ACLU's Project on Speech, Privacy, and Technology, Ben Wizner.

Verizon, AT&T suspend selling customer location data after prison officials were caught misusing it
Verizon, AT&T suspend selling customer location data after prison officials were caught misusing it verizon, verizon wireless, at&t, at&t wireless, data, privacy, prison, phone company, geolocation https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd4_4MPV20qVj80Rm_cQHOw?sub_confirmation=1 (Mike Blake/Reuters) Verizon and AT&T will no longer share its customers' location information with several third-party companies who failed to handle the data appropriately, the companies said Tuesday. The move to cut off access follows an investigation by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) into the commercial relationships between Verizon; a pair of obscure data vendors, LocationSmart and Zumigo; and those companies' corporate customers. Wyden's investigation found that one of Verizon's indirect corporate customers, a prison phone company called Securus, had used Verizon's customer location data in a system that effectively let correctional officers spy on millions of Americans. In a letter to the Federal Communications Commission last month highlighting the probe, Wyden said prison officials using Securus's surveillance system could obtain real-time location data on Americans with little more than a "pinky promise" of propriety, leading to "activities wholly unrelated" to prison management. To gain access to the data, prison officers simply visited an online portal and uploaded an "official document" showing they had permission to access the information. But, Wyden told the FCC, senior Securus officials admitted that the company did not review the requests for information or require that supporting documents reflect the decision of a judge or other legal authority. Securus didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. In the wake of questions from Wyden's staff, Verizon filed a letter Tuesday saying that it is suspending its data-sharing agreement with LocationSmart and Zumigo until further notice. It will also refrain from signing new data-sharing contracts with third parties. "Our review of our location aggregator program has led to a number of internal questions about how best to protect our customers’ location data," Verizon wrote to Wyden. "We will not enter into new location aggregation arrangements unless and until we are comfortable that we can adequately protect our customers’ location data through technological advancements and/or other practices." The decision brings telecom companies further into the debate over data privacy, which has intensified in recent months amid heightened scrutiny of data practices at Facebook, as well as the rise of a new European data protection law. Meanwhile, AT&T last week closed a landmark merger involving Time Warner, one that AT&T said will help turn it into a major player in customer data mining. "Verizon did the responsible thing," Wyden said Tuesday in a statement. "In contrast, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint seem content to continuing to sell their customers’ private information to these shady middle men, Americans’ privacy be damned.” AT&T then said in a statement Tuesday that it also will be ending its relationship with location data aggregators "as soon as practical" while ensuring that location-based services that depend on data sharing, such as emergency roadside assistance, can continue to functi

Alessandro Mantelero: Personal data for decisional purposes in the age of analytics
New technologies and powerful analytics make it possible to collect and analyse large amounts of data in order to identify patterns in the behaviour of groups, communities and even entire countries. Nevertheless, existing case law and regulations are inadequate to address the potential risks and issues related to this change of paradigm in social investigation. Both the right to privacy and the right to data protection are protected as individual rights. Although the social dimension of these rights has been taken into account by courts and policymakers in various countries, the right holder has always been the data subject and the rights related to informational privacy have mainly been exercised by individuals. This atomistic approach shows its limits in the existing context of mass predictive analysis, where the larger scale of data processing and the deeper analysis of information make it necessary to consider another layer, which is different from individual rights. This new layer is represented by the collective dimension of data protection, which protects groups of persons from the potential harms of discriminatory and invasive forms of data processing. On the basis of the distinction between individual, group and collective dimensions of privacy and data protection, the seminar outlines the main elements that characterise the collective dimension of these rights and the representation of the underlying interests.

THE PERFECT MATCH? A CLOSE LOOK AT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CONSUMER LAW AND DATA PROTECTION LAW. Organised by Universiteit van Amsterdam (IVIR) Chair: Ursula Pachl, BEUC (BE) Moderator: Natali Helberger, IVIR (NL) Speakers: Julie Brill, Microsoft (US); Joseph Turow, Annenberg School of Communication (US); Evelyne Gebhardt, European Parliament (EU); Justine Massera, UFC Que Choisir (FR) In the Internet of Bodies, consumers will be surrounded by data-driven products and services. The trading and consumption of these data-driven services fall under two separate sets of rules: consumer law and data protection law. There is little knowledge and experience about how these rules interact and can usefully complement each other. The objective of this panel is to explore how data protection and consumer law could complement each other to better protect consumers in these fast-developing data-driven markets. Special focus will be on the ongoing legislative developments at EU level, but also how to harvest the expertise and experience from the US and EU about how to approach the interactions between consumer and data protection law. What can the US approach towards privacy protection through consumer law contribute to the European debate? - Free services and paying with your data - Draft digital Content Directive - Relationship consumer law/data protection law - EU-US – Transatlantic Dialogue

28c3: Smart Hacking for Privacy
Download high quality version: http://bit.ly/sexyIG Description: http://events.ccc.de/congress/2011/Fahrplan/events/4754.en.html Dario Carluccio, Stephan Brinkhaus: Smart Hacking For Privacy Advanced metering devices (aka smart meters) are nowadays being installed throughout electric networks in Germany, in other parts of Europe and in the United States. Due to a recent amendment especially in Germany they become more and more popular and are obligatory for new and refurbished buildings. Unfortunately, smart meters are able to become surveillance devices that monitor the behavior of the customers leading to unprecedented invasions of consumer privacy. High-resolution energy consumption data is transmitted to the utility company in principle allowing intrusive identification and monitoring of equipment within consumers' homes (e. g., TV set, refrigerator, toaster, and oven) as was already shown in different reports. This talk is about the Discovergy / EasyMeter smart meter used for electricity metering in private homes in Germany. During our analysis we found several security bugs that range from problems with the certificate management of the website to missing security features for the metering data in transit. For example (un)fortunately the metering data is unsigned and unencrypted, although otherwise stated explicitly on the manufacturer's homepage. It has to be pointed out that all tests were performed on a sealed, fully functionally device. In our presentation we will mainly focus on two aspects which we revealed during our analysis: first the privacy issues resulting in even allowing to identify the TV program out of the metering data and second the "problem" that one can easily alter data transmitted even for a third party and thereby potentially fake the amount of consumed power being billed. In the first part of the talk we show that the analysis of the household's electricity usage profile can reveal what channel the TV set in the household is displaying. We will also give some test-based assessments whether it is possible to scan for copyright-protected material in the data collected by the smart meter. In the second part we focus on the data being transmitted by the smart meter via the Internet. We show to what extent the consumption data can be altered and transmitted to the server and visualize this by transmitting some kind of picture data to Discovergy's consumption data server in a way that the picture content will become visible in the electricity profile. Moreover, we show what happens if the faked power consumption data reflects unrealistic extreme high or negative power consumptions and how that might influence the database and service robustness.

Tim Cook Tears Into Personal Data-Based Advertising
Tim Cook sought to distance Apple from the data-mining and advertising practices of other Silicon Valley companies. Follow : http://www.twitter.com/ See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: Tim Cook delivered a scathing speech at the Electronic Privacy Information Center. Some of his remarks were apparent attempts to set Apple apart from other industry heavyweights, which he never named outright but are believed to be the Facebooks and Googles of Silicon Valley. (Video via Google) He said these companies grow "by lulling their customers into complacency about their personal information" and then monetizing it. "We think that's wrong. And it's not the kind of company that Apple wants to be." Cook cautioned against free online services, saying, "We don't think they're worth having your email, your search history and now even your family photos data mined and sold off for god-knows-what advertising purpose." And he directed some of his comments toward government stances on information security and the chilling effect it could have on constitutional protections. He pointed out even if the U.S. government gets around encryption, criminals will still use it. (Video via the Electronic Frontier Foundation) "Weakening encryption, or taking it away, harms good people that are using it for the right reasons," he said. It was one of Cook's more focused criticisms of today's privacy environment, but it wasn't his first. He spoke on user trust, encryption and security at the White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection earlier this year. (Video via The White House) And to PBS' Charlie Rose on the same issues in 2014. "Our business, Charlie, is based on selling these [iPhones]. Our business is not based on having information about you. You're not our product," Cook said. Now, there is a degree of hypocrisy to Cook's speech, considering Apple enables these companies it's indirectly tearing down through its own app store. But as TechCrunch notes, Apple does at least appear to be coming from more justifiable ground. Unlike Google and Facebook, Apple doesn't make the bulk of its money from advertising.

The Health Data Revolution: Improving Outcomes, Protecting Privacy
Will the next great medical insight come from a clinical trial, a laboratory study — or a database search? Today, health systems and insurers have access to a mountain of data about millions of Americans: what medications they take, their health history, even, in some cases, their genetics—plus an emerging body of mobile health data. Using “big data” techniques, doctors and researchers are already mining this data to deliver better care and to gain insights into the kind of hyper-specific questions that clinical trials and observational studies struggle to answer. The approach promises major, rapid-fire, highly-personalized discoveries. At the same time, with the specter of cyberattacks and hacks looming, the need for rugged privacy protection has never been greater. In this Forum, experts in healthcare data and privacy will discuss the potential for future discovery, practical steps to enable progress, and how information can be kept secure. Part of the The Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forums, this event was presented jointly with HuffPost on Tuesday, December 5, 2017. Watch the entire series at ForumHSPH.org.

More recently, researchers and legal tech entrepreneurs are pushing to bring predictive analytics to other areas of the law, including consumer law, legal aid and government. This pane discusses the important questions surrounding the increasing use of predictive analytics in the law, including How do we properly interpret and use the insights gained from data? Will understanding the “odds” dissuade otherwise important cases from being adjudicated? Will understanding the “odds” potentially mask other important issues from consideration? Are predictive analytics companies responsible to disclose how their systems arrived at certain conclusions to enable others to challenge the results? Is it possible to compute policy objectives fairly and accurately?

Emotion detection, personalisation and autonomous decision-making online
Speaker: Damian Clifford, KU Leuven Centre for IT and IP Law Panel Discussants: Dr Edina Harbinja, Senior Lecturer in Law, University of Hertfordshire, Hamed Haddadi, Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor, Chair: Dr Nora Ni Loideain, Director and Lecturer in Law, Information Law and Policy Centre, Institute of Advanced Legal Studies Emotions play a key role in decision making. Technological advancements are now rendering emotions detectable in real-time. Building on the granular insights provided by big data, such technological developments allow commercial entities to move beyond the targeting of behaviour in advertisements to the personalisation of services, interfaces and the other consumer-facing interactions, based on personal preferences, biases and emotion insights gleaned from the tracking of online activity and profiling and the emergence of ‘emphathic media’. Although emotion measurement is far from a new phenomenon, technological developments are increasing the capacity to monetise emotions. From the analysis of inter alia facial expressions, voice/sound patterns, to text and data mining, and the use of smart devices to detect emotions, such techniques are becoming mainstream. Despite the fact there are many applications of such technologies which appear morally above reproach (i.e. at least in terms of their goals (e.g. healthcare or road safety) as opposed to the risks associated with their implementation, deployment and their potential effects), their use for advertising and marketing purposes raises clear concerns in terms of the rationality-based paradigm inherent to citizen-consumer protections and thus the autonomous decision-making capacity of individuals. In this ILPC seminar, Visiting Scholar Damian Clifford will examine the emergence of such technologies in an online context vis-à-vis their use for commercial advertising and marketing purposes (construed broadly) and the challenges they present for EU data protection and consumer protection law. The analysis will rely on a descriptive and evaluative analysis of the relevant frameworks and aims to provide normative insights into the potential legal challenges presented by emotion commercialization online.

How to write email subject lines, Google Data Mining, and Disney's animation iPad app
full blog post: http://www.ramblinjackson.com/2013/08/23/write-email-subject-lines-google-data-mining-disneys-animation-ipad-app/ http://www.ramblinjackson.com | Ramblin Jackson a social media + video marketing agency in Boulder, CO | 303.544.2125 Welcome to the 98th Feature of Friday's Informal Films! Oh, hi and welcome to the 98th edition of Friday's Informal Films! 98 is the number given one of Microsoft's popular versions of Windows, but the initial demo was a blue-screened disaster. Do you remember this amusing moment? [ROLL VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKtGXPfabLQ] Well that was embarrassing, but we all make mistakes. Just last week I accidentally sent out our Friday email with the same subject line as the previous week... but I know that you opened it anyway. Does privacy exist online? Email privacy is big news these days, with one certain government agency recently acknowledging they've been monitoring many people's emails for months. Now, adding to the email privacy story is controversy concerning the world's largest email provider. A California-based advocacy group called Consumer Watchdog this week highlighted an interesting claim emanating from Google - owner of Gmail - with which it's doing battle over data mining. The lawsuit concerns the fact that Google scans Gmail emails for keywords, so it can better target ads at users. Many of the plaintiffs in the class action suit are Gmail users, and Google's argument is that they agreed to its terms when they signed up. But what about users of other email providers who just send a message to a Gmail user? Well, Google scans them too, but doesn't see it as a problem. In a motion to dismiss the Consumer Watchdog-initiated class action lawsuit against it, Google's lawyers stated "While the non-Gmail Plaintiffs are not bound to Google's contractual terms, they nonetheless impliedly consent to Google's practices by virtue of the fact that all users of email must necessarily expect that their emails will be subject to automated processing." Or in simpler terms, "Just as a sender of a letter to a business colleague cannot be surprised that the recipient's assistant opens the letter, people who use web-based email today cannot be surprised if their communications are processed by the recipient's [email] provider in the course of delivery." What does "email privacy" mean to you? So, what do you think about this? Did you know that your personal or business emails are likely scanned in order to target advertising to your interests? Are you concerned for your online privacy? Let us know! Become a Disney Animator with your iPad! Have you ever dreamed of being a Disney animator?

This week's pro tip is to use the 2 2 2 principle when writing your email subject lines. VO: If you want people to actually open your emails, remember that you have: 2 seconds 2 words to tell me "why does this matter to me today?" Why does "August newsletter" matter to me at all today? It doesn't. So get to work on that subject line... today. Come to our upcoming marketing workshop with the Boulder Chamber!

Facebook's investors react to data breach, firm loses over $50bn
Facebook's share price dipped by 4 per cent in Monday trading as investors reacted to news that the Federal Trade Commission of the United States, a consumer protection organisation, had initiated investigations into the firm over privacy concerns. Last week, the company had a turbulent run following revelations that data belonging to over 50 million users was harvested without their knowledge. The tech firm lost over 50 billion U.S. Dollars of its market value within 48 hours of the revelation being made, an amount in excess of 5 trillion Kenya Shillings. Facebook's Chief Executive, Mark Zuckerberg, said he is sorry that it happened, and pledged to put in place measures to tighten the kind of data that apps can source from the social media behemoth. The firm's credibility has taken a big hit with some advertisers threatening to withdraw the placement of ads until the company addresses the challenge of hate messages and potential data breaches.

Updates To Digital Privacy Laws Move Forward
On November 29, 2012, the Senate Judiciary Committee overwhelmingly approved legislation authored by Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) that updates the Video Privacy Protection Act and the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, two of the nation's premier digital privacy laws. The bill updates the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, first enacted in 1986, so that Americans will have added privacy safeguards for their email and other electronic communications. The issue of email privacy was the topic of two Judiciary Committee hearings in recent years, and today's markup comes 18 months after Senator Leahy introduced the measure in May 2011.

Lior Strahilevitz, "Personalizing Default Rules and Disclosure with Big Data"
The laws of intestacy are the same for men and women even though preferences for how one's estate should be divided differ by gender. Peanut-allergic octogenarian men and gluten-allergic pregnant women see the same warnings on consumer products even though they are interested in seeing information that is much better tailored to them. Companies have made enormous strides in studying and classifying groups of consumers, and yet almost none of this information is put to use by providing consumers with contractual default terms or disclosures that are tailored to their preferences and attributes. This lecture will explore the costs and benefits of personalizing various parts of American law and business practices. This talk was recorded on April 7, 2014. Lior Strahilevitz is Sidley Austin Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School.
Google tracks your movements, like it or not
(13 Aug 2018) LEADIN: Google wants to know where you go so badly that it records your movements even when you explicitly tell it not to. An Associated Press investigation found that many Google services on Android devices and iPhones store your location data even if you've used privacy settings that say they will prevent it from doing so. STORYLINE: For the most part, Google is upfront about asking permission to use your location information. An app like Google Maps will remind you to allow access to location if you use it for navigating. If you agree to let it record your location over time, Google Maps will display that history for you in a "timeline" that maps out your daily movements. Storing your minute-by-minute travels carries privacy risks and has been used by police to determine the location of suspects - such as a warrant that police in Raleigh, North Carolina, served on Google last year to find devices near a murder scene. So the company will let you "pause" a setting called Location History. Google says that will prevent the company from remembering where you've been. Google's support page on the subject states: "You can turn off Location History at any time. With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored." That isn't true. Even with Location History paused, some Google apps automatically store time-stamped location data without asking. For example, Google stores a snapshot of where you are when you merely open its Maps app. Automatic daily weather updates on Android phones pinpoint roughly where you are. And some searches that have nothing to do with location, like "chocolate chip cookies," or "kids science kits," pinpoint your precise latitude and longitude - accurate to the square foot - and save it to your Google account. Storing location data in violation of a user's preferences is wrong, says Frederike Kaltheuner, data privacy lead at Privacy International. "Many apps require location data to function, there's nothing wrong with this, but you have to be very upfront with what you're doing with that data and you have to allow people to opt out," she says. "The problem is that the more companies know about you - and location is a very important part of this - the easier it can influence you. "We should always be suspicious of anybody who processes vast amounts of data, because they can be used against you. "And it's not just the company you should be worried about. They can be forced to disclose data with a warrant to law enforcement, plus there are many countries around the world where there are no data or privacy protections." Google says it is being perfectly clear. "There are a number of different ways that Google may use location to improve people's experience, including: Location History, Web and App Activity, and through device-level Location Services," a Google spokesperson said in a statement to the AP. "We provide clear descriptions of these tools, and robust controls so people can turn them on or off, and delete their histories at any time." Huge tech companies are under increasing scrutiny over their data practices, following a series of privacy scandals at Facebook and new data-privacy rules recently adopted by the European Union. Critics say Google's insistence on tracking its users' locations stems from its drive to boost advertising revenue. "There's a discrepancy between what people can understand and what companies are doing," claims Kaltheuner.
